Overview

A Partnership in Literacy reveals what is possible when universities and schools work together to help educate "at risk" children. Camille Allen chronicles her five-year journey as she and her university students collaborated with primary teachers and children from an economically disadvantaged urban school. She describes her students' learning, changes in their thinking, and their personal growth - how they engaged in reflective practice and collaboration and developed a sense of community and common experience.

Case studies let you watch as the university students reshape their perceptions about the education of students from an at risk population and the primary students build confidence, learn reading strategies, and increase fluency. Excerpts from conversations and samples of students' journals and portfolios reveal the strengths and the pitfalls of many of the literacy experiments.

A Partnership in Literacy will help primary teachers, university professors, and personnel at community service centers realize the benefits that such collaborations produce. More important, it will inspire and provide concrete strategies for others to create literacy partnerships of their own.
